Can someone please give a definitive answer:

Are vehicles driven by Civil Enforcement Officers allowed to park in contravention of the parking rules?

This vehicle is dangerously parked on double yellow lines at a T junction.

There is evidence of lots of other contraventions by officers.

authorities may write an exemption into their TMO's but plod could still have them for obstruction

From 6.22 of the operational guidance although this has been discontinued and may be out of date.


• the need to operate within the law and, in particular, not to break traffic regulations whilst enforcing them;

I would venture that has not changed

Most if not all traffic orders include an exemption on No Waiting restrictions for vehicles on council business.
Which a CEO would be doing assuming they are working and not simply parked up eating breakfast.

Indeed, exemption for DYL, not from criminal offences like unnecessary obstruction, although the 'unnecessary would be modified depending on what they were doing, a 'tow away' obviously has a necessary level of obstruction (over and above a parked car) while it's lifting the car in question.

See this as well, I do hope the bus driver was heavily fined and disqualified from driving.

I have no idea what that has to do with the rest of the thread.
